DECEMBER FULL COLD MOONRISE BETWEEN TWIN LIGHTHOUSES

Love also the Native American name Long Night’s Moon for December’s Full Moon as it is so near the winter solstice, the longest night of the year, which this year is December 21st.   Here are some additional interesting names for December’s Moon:

Abenaki – Winter Maker

Algonquin – Much White Frost on Grass

Anishnaabe – Small Spirits

Cherokee – Snow Moon

Cheyenne – When Wolves Run Together

Cree – Young Fellow Spreads the Brush

Haida – Ripe Berries

Hopi – Moon of Respect

Lakota and Sioux – When Deer Shed Their Antlers

Passamaquoddy – Frost Fish Moon

Tlingit – Unborn Seals are Getting Hair

Winnebago – Big Bear’s Moon

Zuni – Sun Has Traveled Home to Rest

From the Farmer’s Almanac – “The term Long Night’s Moon is a doubly appropriate name because the midwinter night is indeed long, and because the Moon is above the horizon for a long time. The midwinter full Moon has a high trajectory across the sky because it is opposite a low Sun.”

DECEMBER FULL COLD MOON SHINING OVER OUR LADY OF GOOD VOYAGE

Wishing my Friends a Joyous Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and Peace throughout the New Year ❤
